As the country continues to suffer from a global pandemic his administration mishandled, President Donald Trump spent Mother's Day promoting the reopening of his private golf course.
The tweet got lost in an unprecedented Mother's Day Twitter tantrum, but can be seen below.
So great to see our Country starting to open up again! https://t.co/ceXFk4iWBX— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1589111069.0
Over 80,000 lives were claimed by the virus, with many health experts stating a premature reopening of American businesses will cause that number to spike.
President Trump has a larger concern, however—people paying him money to play golf.

Most Presidents would never stoop so low as to use the voice of the Presidency to promote a personal business during a bona-fide national emergency.
But Trump took things a step further still.
